Welcome to a special international issue of Rehabilitation Nursing! I am so excited to share in this RNJ issue international work from authors representing 11 countries including: Brazil and Germany, China and the United States, Korea, Turkey, Persia, Taiwan, Canada, Australia, and Poland. In America, we are blessed to have access to the best rehabilitation services in the world. Rehabilitation nursing in the USA is a growing and thriving specialty. But, this is not the case in most of the developing countries. To give our readers a unique perspective on international rehabilitation nursing, I invited Chris MacDonell from CARF International to join me in sharing thoughts about the state of our specialty in the world. Please be sure to read our editorial and examine the interesting work that rehabilitation nurses are doing around the globe.
